2021 Mum Festival Theme Announced

Our Mum Festival Theme for 2021: 

“Honoring Heroes”

Profiles of Courage

As most of you know due to the construction on Memorial Boulevard over the next few years, the Mum Festival will be moving to the Downtown area.  The prints below, are a preliminary view of our plans for 2021 and beyond.  Due to Covid Protocols the 2021 Mum Festival will only be one weekend, starting September 24th – 26th.  Unfortunately we will not be able to have the Carnival back until 2022 due to the current protocols.

These are challenging times for our Country and our Community… We pray for everyone to be safe and healthy, and hope the crisis passes soon, so we can all get on with our daily life…   Inner Peace and Prayers everyone!

Mum Festival Parade Route

2021 MUM PARADE ROUTE:

Please note, due to construction projects on Memorial Boulevard, the Mum Festival Parade Route will be changed.  Please see the new Parade Route in the print below.  

The Parade will officially end on North Main Street just past City Hall.  Our Grand Reviewing Stand location will be on Main Street in front of Barnes Group.  Spectators should avoid North Main Street past City Hall, as that is the official end of the performing route.  All units will disperse as they travel onto North Main Street.   

2020 Parade Route - Plan D

The Parade will end on North Main Street, just past City Hall.  For spectators, the parade will not continue down North Main as it did in the past.
